Dear lilshu,

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

It's simple grammar. This isn't only about a militia. These guys weren't dumb, they could tell that there would be a time when we wouldn't have/need a militia anymore, and appropriately worded this amendment to make sure that, even after our militia is gone, we still are guaranteed a way to defend ourselves from assault/oppressive government/criminals/whatever and a way to hunt game. Not to mention, repealing the second amendment would actually allow the government to completely take away all guns, so when criminals come out with them, there's nothing to do about it. Guy breaks into your house with a gun and you don't have one. What do you do? You die. If you had a gun, he'd more likely be dead. The problem actually is not guns. The problem is not that the amendment is invalid. The problem is there's not enough insane asylums/smart people to actually be safe without guns. If we had less insane people/dumb people/people with mental disabilities, we'd have a lot less violence, because those are the people who kill people. Guns do not kill people. Insanity kills people. We must be limiting insanity, not guns. In fact, limiting guns is illegal. "...shall not be infringed." And there you go.

 

Did I win yet?

Of course it is about guns. You yourself just said that it was the gun that was the problem, because you would get killed by it if you, yourself, do not own one.

 

Now imagine the situation where neither has a gun..! Perish the thought, no one dies.

A well regulated militia is necessary for the security of a free state. To have a well regulated militia, citizens need guns.

No, you're not using the punctuation correctly. This is one thought, so therefore, a militia is not the point. The statement is more like "In order to maintain the security of a free state, the citizens must have the right to keep and bear arms."

 

Also, homicide rates drop dramatically if there is 0% limitation on guns. Look at any country where there's practically no gun freedom. Insane homicide rates. Then look at Texas. Pretty much no gun limits. Very low homicide rates.

Hey guys Vatican City has some of the lowest homicide rates in the world! That country must be doing something right. -.-

 

Also, saying that guns don't kill people because people kill people is silly. I can have a gamecube but without any games, and it'd be worthless. And I can have a gamecube game without a gamecube, and it'd be worthless. I need both the gamecube and Super Monkey Ball 2 to properly play some shizzle. Likewise, a person (usually) doesn't kill people without a gun, and a gun (more usually) doesn't kill people without a person. Thus, guns don't kill people, and people don't kill people; people with guns kill peoplezzz.

 

I wasn't really paying attention so I don't know who I'm supporting, but that makes this post all the more objective -.-.

I think this is a prime example why the second amendment should be kept.

 

Bronies: Bringing liberals and conservatives together since 2010

Yes, but you're still pretty contradictory there, but I'll forgive you for long enough to annihilate all bronies.

There's more important work at hand than a political debate!

Yes. Let us all just take Washington's advice and get rid of the political parties, and form one big organization called the "Union of Sane People Against Bronies"

I'm in favour of the second amendment being advanced to alllow US citizens to carry personal nuclear weapons within their national borders (ONLY).

May not be very safe there but a great relief for the rest of the world in the near future.

I think we're all missing the point here. If we don't have guns, what will we do when the nuclear apocalypse occurs and the government turns on it's own citizens? We'll need guns to fight the government and the mutants!
